TRAINING COURSE Digital PCR (ddPCR)
October 16 - 17, 2017
Illkirch, France

The aim of this training course is to provide attendees with the principles and applications of droplet digital PCR (ddPCR). The program will describe ddPCR best practices so that each participant will be able to plan, perform and use the technology whatever the scientific and / or biomedical applications of his project. The speakers will highlight the benefits, but also limitations of the technology, and will illustrate them though applications in functional genomics in rodents.

Objectives

  • To prepare and design your experiments using ddPCR
  • To understand the advantages and limitations of ddPCR
  • To use ddPCR technology to detect CNVs (copy number variation)

Audience

Researchers and experienced technicians.

Prerequisite

A good knowledge in molecular biology is required including the use of PCR methods.

The participation is free while the registration is mandatory. The course is conducted in French.

Limited number of attendees : 6

TRAINING COURSE In vivo CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing
November 9 - 10, 2017
Illkirch, France

Objectives

PHENOMIN's training aims to provide a general framework to get scientists started using CRISPR/Cas9 for in vivo gene editing in rodents.

The main topics are:

  • Learn more about gene editing and how it works
  • Hear about current advances on many technical aspects
  • Optimize the RNA guide design to the genotyping analysis (bioinformatics workshop).
  • Highlight crucial issue in your own scientific project.

The course in conducted in English.

2 Next sessions in 2018- March and November

TRAINING COURSE Journée Recherche et Santé
December 7, 2017
Paris, France

Espèces modèles en recherche biomédicale: quels atouts, quelles complémentarités ?

Les Journées Recherche et Santé sont des séminaires de formation organisés en collaboration avec les Instituts thématiques multi-organismes à l’initiative du Bureau des formations scientifiques et de soutien à la recherche (BFSSR) du Département des ressources humaines de l’Inserm.

Cette journée est proposée par le Bureau des formations scientifiques et de soutien à la recherche (BFSSR) du Département des ressources humaines de l’'Inserm et l'Institut thématique multi-organismes Aviesan (ITMO) Biologie cellulaire, développement et évolution (BCDE) avec la collaboration de Yann Hérault (CELPHEDIA, PHENOMIN-ICS, Illkirch) et Jean-Stéphane Joly (CELPHEDIA, TEFOR, Institut des Neurosciences Paris-Saclay) qui se tiendra le jeudi 7 décembre 2017 à l'Institut du Cerveau et de Moelle Epinière (ICM), Paris 13e.

Les orateurs présenteront plusieurs modèles animaux avec leurs contraintes et leurs limites et comment ces modèles ont pu ou peuvent encore d'avantage contribuer à des avancées majeures.

Deux tables rondes aborderont la question de la transparence et la reproductibilité des données en recherche ainsi que l'impact sur l'utilisation des animaux modèles, des besoins croissants en médecine personnalisée, en particulier la caractérisation des variations génomiques dont le caractère pathologique ou non reste dans l’ensemble à déterminer.

Inscription gratuite mais obligatoire sur le site dédié jusqu’au 31 octobre.

Conseil scientifique: Yann Hérault (CELPHEDIA, PHENOMIN-ICS, Illkirch) Jean-Stéphane Joly (CELPHEDIA, TEFOR, Institut des Neurosciences Paris-Saclay)

Coordination et organisation  : Thierry Galli, Christine Lemaitre, Sylvie Robine (Institut Thématique Aviesan Biologie cellulaire, développement et évolution) Barro Sow, Christine Tanga (Inserm DRH-BFSSR)
